Pros

Pay is above min wage and you receive a raise 3 months 6 months and then every year (0.10), they have flexible schedule, if your a good employee (like myself) you can receive full time hours.

Cons

constantly firing and re-hiring, new polices almost everyday, small opportunity to move up if your manager doesn't favor you.

    I worked at Menards part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    is a well established company with policies that are made to treat you fair. call workers become a family, you learn useful things for life, if you are willing to relocate it is easy to move up in the company

    Cons

    some policies do not always treat the employee fairly, lots of cleaning, is a retail store so I expect lots of customer service with selling to all kinds of people, open on most holidays and weekends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all employees fairly

    I worked at Menards full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fast-Paced and challenging work environment. Opportuninty to advance quickly if willing to relocate. Lots of opportunity for overtime.

    Cons

    The pay is hourly and low, they want you to work for bonuses. Upper management can be out of touch sometimes. Corporate will micro manage at every opportunity. Relocation is required for management trainees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, make sure you are focused on customer service as well.
